Film Description: The music video, made in close collaboration with London based motion artist Gabriel Thomas Ayache, takes the viewer on a journey of visual enjoyment and self-reflection, one of re-connection with the elements of nature through various carefully composed Land Art pieces. The song was written in the north of India and comes to voice the feeling of being in another dimension, where time passes differently and where connecting to the power of nature while letting alternative forces direct you intuitively, is possible. Stepping away from the mundane city life and informally shifting into serenity, when both the body and metaphysical self, the mind, can calmly merge.

Film Description: Incensed by the current political situation in Italy whereby the government have made the migrants a scapegoat for the country’s problems, the symbolic and socio-politically pertinent video tells the story of one man’s journey through two different lenses – the literal and spiritual. The cinematic video sees main protagonist played by South African musician Kholeho Mosala leave his family and embark on a treacherous journey across the sea. Accompanied throughout by a group of dancers who represent both the real and spiritual ferrymen that go with him, the video is littered with recurring symbols and themes in this journey include a tarot suit; the stick, the sword, the cup, the money and coins, and Homer’s The Odyssey.
